Some Experience Sharing
Student Name: Arka Mukherjee
Organisation where SIP was done: Hindustan Coca-Cola Beverages (HCCB) Pvt. Ltd.
Project Title - Potential Untapped Competitive Market of Immediate Consumption of Coca- Cola Products in At-Work Channel and activation strategy to increase footprints and sales numbers.
Students Comments regarding the Experience: The Project gave me the opportunity to scale the presence of one of the biggest Beverage companies of the world. The channel and the location I got to work with stretched the scope of my learning and contribution. As an intern working at Electronics City, Bangalore, a hub for large Tech companies, manufacturing units and financial institutions, associated with "At-Work" Channel, consists of a large proportion of target customers, with high purchasing power. As a part of the project, I got the opportunity to personally interact with the employees and came to know about their perception as well as ignorance related to Coca-Cola products. The project helped me understand how HCCB is performing its sales and distribution operations and the loopholes and opaqueness in the network.
Student Name: Shipra Chandak
Organisation where SIP was done: Boeing India Pvt. Ltd. Placed Boeing India Pvt Ltd.
PPO offered (Yes/No): Yes
Students Comments regarding the Experience: There were a lot of emotions churning through my stomach. As the day came closer, what to expect, how to behave, what is expected of me. I worked on project “Strategy Process Improvement and Scope for Business Expansion”. During my work, I got a chance to interact with top executives of the company, understand the current business scenario, the functioning of the organization, handling people, handling complex situations and the like. The most challenging part was to work on Project planning, for which, I stretched myself beyond the limits to do what was expected of me. I profoundly thank XIME for such a great opportunity
